South West Majorca is the most popular area to stay in with big holiday resorts such as Palma Nova and Magaluf offering both All Inclusive and Self Catering deals. They’re also all in easy reach of the capital of Palma. For a quieter resort, choose Cala Bona, a small traditional fishing village with a relaxing feel. 

Many choose to spend their day in Majorca on the golden sands, heading inland at night to experience the restaurants and nightclubs, and our beach holidays to Majorca can help you live the same lifestyle. But with other draws to Majorca such as mountain biking, wine tasting and our cheap holiday deals, there’s something for everyone on this popular island. 

The two don’t have to go hand-in-hand but they are the main attractions to visitors of Majorca. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches and they’re not just for laying on. There are all the water sports you’d expect as well as the chance to explore the caves and coves scattered along the shoreline. For snorkelling, start on one of the five beaches of Cala d'Or and for a family beach head to Palma Nova. Nightlife is abundant in Majorca but the major resorts hold the biggest events, perhaps you’ve heard of Magaluf?

There’s a reason professional cyclists use the mountain ranges in Majorca to train, and you can follow suit on the trails of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range. Or if you prefer, you can swap your bike for walking shoes and hike the route instead. If you’ve got the kids but still want to be a bit adventurous, choose from one of the many water parks on the island for thrills for the whole family.

You’ll notice the variety of birdlife throughout Majorca, but head to the cliffs where the Serra de Tramuntana meets the sea to get your best view. For untouched beaches and more wildlife, the Parc Natural de Mondragó will really show off the natural sights of the island. To see some wildlife up close and personal and for a great family day out, go to the Safari Zoo wildlife and leisure park.

Majorca is best for

Cyclists: Ride the same tracks as professional cyclists who train at the mountain range and World Heritage site of Serra de Tramuntana.  

Beach seekers: The resorts throughout Majorca offer superb white-sand beaches and all the water activities you can imagine. They are also the perfect spot if you’ve enjoyed Majorca’s impressive nightlife the evening before. 

Culture enthusiasts: Head to Palma to get a true feel of the Balearic culture. From the architecture and museums to the Palma de Mallorca Cathedral, the capital city shows that the island has more to it than just beaches and nightlife.


Fast facts

Language: The official languages are Spanish and Catalan, and the island’s often referred to as Mallorca which is the local Catalan name. The name ‘Majorca’ derives from it being the largest (or Major) of the Spanish Balearic Islands.  

Currency: The currency used in Majorca is the Euro.

Local time: 1 hour ahead of UK/GMT. 

Fly to: Son Sant Joan (also known as Palma de Mallorca Airport), around 5km from the capital of Palma.

Visa & Health: Before you travel to Majorca, visit here for advice and recommendations on visa and health topics.


Weather and climate

Temperature: Averaging around 25°C in the summer with the hottest months of July and August. The Mediterranean climate means temperatures in winter are mild. 

Best time to visit: May to October is beach season, with July and August hitting the highest temperatures. Summers are hot and dry with around 11 hours of sunshine a day and winters are mild with temperatures usually close to double figures, which may be more comfortable for those taking part in active outdoor activities. Though the evening temperatures can drop to single figures, you can still enjoy around 6 hours of sunshine a day and the sea stays warm enough to swim in until around November. The Tramuntana mountain range usually has the coldest and wettest winters on the island. 


Getting Around

By train: There are two main railways lines. The Palma to Soller scenic route takes you on an antique train and is a must-do attraction. Palma to Inca is a more commercial route.   

By taxi: Agree on a price before you set off with your taxi driver to get a cheap deal.

By hire car: You can hire a car from the airport or your resort could arrange this for you. 

By bus: In and around Palma you can use the city EMT buses. For inland travel between resorts use the TIB buses. You can also reserve private airport transfer buses in advance.

By boat: Ferry from mainland Spain.


Events

Nautical enthusiasts: Watch the SuperYacht Cup between the 22nd and 25th June 2016, this year marks the 20th anniversary and is the longest running superyacht regatta in Europe.  

History lovers: The rural town of Soller recreates the famous battle of 1561 in ‘Moros y Cristianos’. The festival takes place over four days, on the second weekend in May.

The up-all-nighters: The clubs start to open at the beginning of June with popular beach resorts Magaluf, Alcudia and Playa de Palma attracting the majority of the tourists. But there’s also an array of music events, including the BH Mallorca Hotel holding concerts every Tuesday throughout summer.
